Overview

At the start of the American Civil War, German spy Gunter Rohlenheim is sent by Prince Otto von Bismarck to the United States to gather intelligence on the development of an advanced warship. Before Gunter can find his way to his intended target, his nemesis from ten years earlier sends an assassin to neutralize him.

Barely escaping death, Gunter is surprised when his investigation uncovers more advanced war technology being developed by the Confederates. Angamar, an enigmatic old scientist, connives to include Gunter into his development of a self-propelled torpedo, and Gunter discovers the reincarnation of his own first engineering project, a submarine.

The Confederate submarine experiment evolves into the H.L. Hunley, and Gunter, using the alias Sam Miller, is consumed with the desire to become part of her crew. When the Hunley is called up for duty as a blockade breaker in Charleston, South Carolina, Gunter is forced to choose between loyalty to his homeland, the submersible, and an attractive war widow.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Floyd Orr
The best book I have read on The Civil War is Bruce Catton's This Hallowed Ground, told from the perspective of a Union foot soldier. I have a first edition copy of Clancy's The Hunt for Red October, surely the best modern submarine story. As a history trivia author (Timeline of America: Sound Bytes from the Consumer Culture), I put Convergence of Valor right between This Hallowed Ground and Red October. Valor brings to life the true story of America's first submarine.

I had bought this book because it is about the brave men of H. L. Hunley. I knew nothing about the author, Guntis Goncarovs. I am glad I bought Convergence of Valor because it was an enjoyable read. Goncarvos masterfully tells the story about the first submarine to sink a United States warship. His characters are believable and the dialogue is terrific. I also write historical fiction and take my hat off him. I look forward to reading more books by this wonderful author.

A stunning piece of work. Mr. Goncarovs displays three great gifts: a talent for meticulous research, a fluid, original style and the ability to recreate a period and place. As a writer of historical fiction Guntis Goncarovs is first class.
